Inspired by his friend Veronica to reevaluate his relationship with other species, Kevin learns about the pain and suffering inflicted on lab animals as he forges a bond with the capuchin. When father and son embark on a road trip with Henry, Kevin is caught between the egocentric father who abandoned him and the temperamental monkey whose fate is in his hands. With both the FBI and his mother's ghost watching, will Kevin risk his career and his father's freedom to bring the stolen monkey to safety? Meanwhile, Veronica's encounter with an eccentric Catholic priest triggers her own journey toward change.

A heartbreaking yet comic family drama, A Better Heart examines the human-animal bond and the bonds between fathers and sons, challenging readers to explore their beliefs about the treatment of non-human species.

Awaken (Awakened Fate Book 1)

by Skye Malone


Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski’s plan. Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.

But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which ‘normal’ doesn't even begin to apply.

Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend’s stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own.

It was supposed to be a vacation. It's turning out to be a whole lot more.

Twelve-year-old Ravlen has to grow up too soon, to save those who can’t save themselves.

She’s not ready, but she goes anyway.

Into the echo, where she has to find herself as much as the lost souls within.

WHEN GODS CLASH: THE BLUE PENDANT

by ROB JAMES


A genre-bending breakout novel from a bold, fresh voice in contemporary fiction. Think Highlander, all set in the present day.

While visiting the battlefield of Culloden, Scotland, US marine veteran Angus MacDonald hears a voice. A voice that connects him to his forefathers, butchered by the British in 1746. It delivers a frightening message: Fight an unworldly foe or prepare for Earth’s enslavement.
The terrors he faced in Afghanistan pale compared to this latest enemy and the toughest battle of his life begins. The voice of the Gods of mythology had told him Hades was alone in his hate, but no, and the vicious attacks are beyond his imaginings as the theater of war spreads.

Can he preserve his sanity and survive?

He must confront history to defend the world from servitude while unraveling his strange heritage. He strives to discover millennia-old truths from Olympus, Greece, and the violent history that produced them. The truth of who bred him to die saving humanity. When he returns to Washington, D.C., the enemy, Hades, follows.

Rob James’ WHEN GODS CLASH includes a fascinating take on Greek mythology through vivid world-building. This novel is a searing, unique makeover of loved themes.
